We consider the design of a network in which packet transmissions between two nodes are to be guaranteed a certain probability of success. There are N independent paths between the two nodes, each path having a fixed probability of success (perhaps representing an a priori estimate of the security of the path). The original message is encoded using a… CONTINUE READING
